CRICKET: The cricket net prac­tice pitches on Bray St will be resur­faced in the near fu­ture af­ter the Coffs Har­bour District Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion was suc­cess­ful in re­ceiv­ing a grant from the New South Wales Govern­ment.

“It’s not cheap to resur­face nets, it can be up to $3000 for each wicket which can be pretty hard to find.” CHDCA pres­i­dent Steve Meakins said.

“We’re very ap­pre­cia­tive of An­drew Fraser and their con­tri­bu­tion.”

The Coffs Coast Outrig­ger Ca­noe Club, Sawtell and District Soc­cer Club and Sawtell Golf Club, among oth­ers, were also the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of a grant.

“Tack­ling child­hood obe­sity and in­creas­ing reg­u­lar and on­go­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in sport and ac­tive recre­ation for peo­ple of all ages is a NSW Govern­ment pri­or­ity,” Min­is­ter for Sport Stu­art Ayres said.

“These funds will help en­cour­age peo­ple on the Coffs Coast, re­gard­less of their age or abil­ity, to get in­volved in sport and ac­tive recre­ation.”

Seven clubs in the re­gion will re­ceive grants rang­ing from $2000 to $16,000.
